DC EMS Using Arlington Radio Frequencies

The District’s emergency communications system went down Monday night, prompting Arlington to allow D.C. radio traffic on some of the county’s channels.

ARLnow.com heard D.C. paramedics being dispatched on a fire department administrative channel. Among the calls broadcast on Arlington frequencies was a report of a stabbing in northeast Washington.

The cross-jurisdiction transmissions have since stopped.

More from the Washington Post.
